    Since 1925 this rare wildflower has been protected by Minnesota state law (it is illegal to pick the flowers or to uproot or unearth the plants). Lady slippers are listed as threatened and endangered by many states.

    They grow in the swamp between hwy 65 and the railway. Can't tell ya how many old lady's I've seen digging them up. I always wonder if anyone ever gets called out on that and what the penalties are.

    No scrounging today but I did build a new deck for my sauna after I got home. The old deck will be added on to the front deck of my cabin.

    “Harry?”

    “Marv!!”

    “You’re missing some teeth!”

    Edit:This was on the saw I bought yesterday, I can’t claim whatever happened to these! This chain is hideous!!!

    Finally got out again after having to sit on the sidelines for a week or so with a bad back (still not 100% but figured I'd test it out and see how it goes) it held up ok (more or less) but still not right but managed to get through it all with the help of pain killers and massages and stretches.

    Anyway we spotted a nice 30m long gum tree that was ready to be harvested so my mate dropped it down using his 359 Husky and my 394 got the job of working on the big end. The rest of it was cut up using the 359 and my Stihl 029s we also cut up another tree that was already on the ground and it was around 20m in length at a guess, so far we have carted 3 loads out and I think we have another good load on the ground maybe slightly more. We will be out tomorrow cutting a bit of firewood for my mate who's wood pile is getting a bit low and I've also got some good solid rounds of Peppermint I have to pick up that I've had on the ground out there for a good 4mths or so and I also need some kindling type wood for starter wood so will cut some of that up too.

    Self tapping mate, from memory I used a rattle gun on the one I did a while back.

    20190607_193855.jpg So I decided this will be the new scrounge mobile. 20190605_173034.jpg He came down to $8500 and said he would tell the notary 4k to help me keep the taxes down. It's a little high for the age but finding one this clean in PA is like winning the lottery :yes:

    7.3 was the first choice when I decided to go diesel. 6.4s are basket cases and 6.0s are hit or miss whether they plug the EGR and lift the heads. There was a 6.0 truck that was deleted and studded already that I looked at but the body was in ruff shape.

    Broke my scrounging dry spell this morning. Never fired the saw. Pulled up, got loaded, tipped the operator and I was gone. :)

    I'm not sure, but that might be cheating?
